The stoplight is a point of aggravation with the locals. It seems it is more put in place to artificially allow semi trucks and other heavy loads to cross the river here instead of the much worse bridge at Philo. the light causes a large string of traffic to cross the bridge at once, effectively counteracting the 'one lane' policy anyway.

This bridge receives more traffic but is the scapegoat for the upriver one.

This bridge appears to be on its last legs as it has a full-time stop light to keep traffic at a minimum. A shame it is coming to that
